This tour will give you the opportunity to visit independently three significant villages in Puglia: Ostuni, Alberobello e Polignano a Mare.
The first stop of the tour is Ostuni, a picturesque town worth being experienced. Known as the "White City", Ostuni boasts a wonderful medieval village, rich with alleys and whitewashed houses which recalls an oriental landscape. You will have free time to visit the old town centre, called "la terra" ("the land"), characterized by alleys, sloping stairs, courtyards and small squares, where whitewashed houses, craft shops and typical small shops appear.
After Ostuni we will reach Alberobello, crossing some charming villages located on top of the hills. The landscape is a continuous succession of ancient olive trees and trulli. Visiting the beautiful Alberobello is like a journey to a timeless country. You will have free time at disposal to explore its characteristic historic centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. teh city center is integrally made up of "Trulli", particular white, pyramidal structures that make it unique in the world and represent one of the most extraordinary examples of Italian folk architecture. Particularly striking are the two districts: "Rione Monti" with its local handcrafts shops and "Aia Piccola", where the most ancient Trulli and little museums are situated.
After Alberobello, descending towards the Adriatic Sea, you will reach the beautiful Polignano a Mare, birthplace to the famous Domenico Modugno.
